Become a grazer. A large meal can trigger the body to release more insulin, resulting in low blood sugar levels and a fatigue-inducing slump. Smaller meals or healthy snacks throughout the day can help keep blood sugar levels steady.
Stay hydrated. Dehydration is a common cause of fatigue – drink purified water or other healthy liquids throughout the day.
Snack right. Choose healthy snacks that contain some protein, carbohydrates and beneficial fats. Good options include a handful of unsalted nuts, fresh fruit, vegetable sticks, protein shake or protein bar.
Eat more fiber. Navy beans, kidney beans, chickpeas and lentils are all rich in fiber, which slows the release of insulin and helps maintain a steady supply of energy.
